About Us

Ethos Academy Trust

Ethos Academy Trust comprises Engage Academy (KS1 & 2), Reach Academy (KS3) and  Ethos College (KS4). Together, we provide wide ranging support and / or educational opportunities for pupils with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs. Trust staff work in partnership with schools, parents / carers and other professionals to support and promote the educational and social inclusion of pupils.

How is Support Accessed?

Mainstream schools can refer for support when it is recognised that more targeted or specialist support is required for an individual pupil. Referrals are made through the Single Point Referral (SPR) process. The SPR Panel is held fortnightly and comprises a team of professionals (including Trust and mainstream Head Teachers).

What Support is Available?

Ethos Academy Trust delivers support for children within a broad  continuum of social, emotional and mental health need as well as other medical needs. 

The following support is provided by the Trust:

PRS staff provide time-limited packages of support in school settings.

1:1 teaching & learning support for pupils unable to attend school for medical reasons.

Time-limited turnaround placements working in partnership with schools, parents/carers and other professionals  to assess and plan / deliver support for the child’s social, emotional and mental health needs . Reintegrations at the end of placement are carefully planned and resourced with support in school, as appropriate.

Additional needs provision for complex pupils unable to attend mainstream school (eg as an alternative to Permanent Exclusion – where the child returns to their ‘home’ school and for Children Missing from Education) to enable a thorough assessment of the pupil’s needs to inform a long term plan.

Full time long term provision for Key Stage 4 Pupils is available at Ethos College
